Advantages: Great customisation options
Disadvantages: Lower framerate when playing in co-op mode
Modnation Racers is a cartoon car racing game that allows players to play, create and share the content that they have created. The game is similar to Little Big Planet. But instead of Sackboy it involves cars and carts. This game is an excellent addition to your PS3 library and it has been developed very well. The game allows you to create race tracks that the player can upload and share online. Gamers can also create custom characters by selecting various aspects like skin, clothes and even horns! You can also make them a little bit nightmarish by selecting multiple eyes and noses.
Modnation Racers allows players to create tracks based on a variety of preset themes like desert, coastal, alpine etc. While racing I found out that drifting is an essential part of the game. It is easy to do and the controls are well laid out. Drifting allows you to collect points which are used to fill up a small meter. Once the meter is full, you can use it for getting a boost to your cart. Players can also use different weapons in the game to shoot at rival players.
The game also has a Career mode called Career Central which allows players to control a character named Tag. It also allows you to host split screen races in which upto four players can take part. One of the major disadvantages of the game is the load time. The game takes about 15 seconds to load each time you start a new race. Apart from this, there are no major issues. This game is a great buy for racing fans and for people who like to create and share things online. But if you are a hardcore gamer, this is not for you.
Summary: Modnation Racers is a great racing game.
